Rappers Drake and Lil Wayne are to launch an interactive digital game to coincide with their upcoming joint tour.

The DvsLw app will allow users to select either Drake or Lil Wayne characters and battle to help their favourite rapper "power up" and impact their performances "in real time", according to Billboard.com.

A joint statement from the rappers reads: "We are both thrilled that our fans will get the unique opportunity to join us in this interactive experience."

The Drake Vs Lil Wayne tour will kick-off on Friday (08Aug14) in New York.
